Johanna Bloom discovered her talent for photorealistic portraiture at age 14.  She began to study the world around her through highly realistic drawing and painting. Realizing the power of art to communicate ideas, she eventually expanded to more imaginative "expressionistic" art as well. She studied fine art in high school and at Biola University of Los Angeles, and began commissioning professional portraits in 2013.  She is adept in most 2D media (including charcoal, pastel, graphite, scratchboard, oil, acrylic, and watercolor), and enjoys diversity in her compositions.

In May 2016, Johanna started a tattoo apprenticeship, graduating as a licensed tattoo artist in 2017 in her native state of Colorado. In March 2018, she moved to Florida, and joined Triton Tattoo of North Palm Beach (www.tritontattoofl.com).  She enjoys all her art, from portraits to fantastical tattoos to her first political project, Unmasking the Marked.  Her work has been featured by BuzzFeed, Scientific American Magazine, Stratus Chamber Orchestra, and Valor Symphonics Orchestra (see Blog).  When she is not creating, she enjoys riding her dressage horse and adventuring with her husband, friends, and ferrets.
